This is not a scam I have done it myself
Can you really make money so easily? I am and this helps whilst developing my own online business!
I thought it was impossible. Just read this. I don't even have to convince you that this is not a scam because it makes logical sense how you can earn money through paypal.
A little while back, I was browsing through a newsgroup, just like you are now and came across an article similar to this that said you could make thousands dollars within weeks with only an initial investment of $6.00! So I thought, "Yeah, right, this must be a scam", but like most of us, I was curious, so I kept reading :
OPRAH WINFREY and an article published in the Wall Street Journal, here is some of it!!
Everyone has heard about "PayPal" (if you haven't you will soon) and, when I came
across this concept I knew it would work because, as a member of PayPal, I had already experienced their efficiency and excellent standing. PayPal is the simplest method of making and receiving payments online anyone has ever seen! Anyone with an
email address can join, for FREE! Please read further before you go there...
You can complete this whole process in less than one hour and you will never forget the day you decided to do so!!! Oh!, Did I say FAST? By fast I mean 'the speed of the Internet-type fast.' Everything is done on the Internet by E-mail. And, if you abide by the rules, it is NOT considered SPAM, so it's perfectly legal!
Anyway, it said that you send $1.00 though paypal to each of the emails stated in the article. You then place your own email address in the bottom of the list at No.6, and post the article in at least 200
newsgroup. (There are thousands) No catch, that was it. So after thinking it over, and talking to few people first, I thought about trying it. I figured what have I got to lose except $6.00, right?
Like most of us I was a little sceptical and a little worried about the legal aspects of it : It follows the same regulations as the mailed chain letters, which according to the ) is indeed legal! Then I invested the measly $6.00. Well GUESS WHAT!!?. Within 7 days, I started getting money in my PayPal account! I was shocked and excited! I figured it would end soon, but the money just kept coming in. In my first week, I made about $25.00. By the
end second week I had made a total over $1,100.00! In the third week I had over $9,000.00 and it's still growing. This is now my fourth week and I have made a total of just over $22,000.00 and it's still
coming in rapidly. Its : Certainly worth $6.00., I have spent more than that on the lottery!! : Let me tell you how this works and most importantly, why it works? Also, make sure you print a copy of this
article NOW, so you can get the information off of it as you need it.

REQUIREMENTS: You must have a verified PayPal account. If you do not have an account you can go to and follow the instructions to set up a free account. In order to place the initial $6 into your account, you will have to verify your bank account with PayPal (which may take a few days). Paypal is 100% secure and is used my millions of people world wide.
STEP 1: Send, though PayPal, $1.00 to each email on the below list.
Make the subject of the payment "Email List" and in the comments,
write "PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR EMAIL LIST." What you are doing is creating a service by this and best of all you are not giving your address to anyone you do not know.. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY LEGAL!
The email list:

STEP 2: Now take the 1st email off the list that you see above, move the other addresses up (6 becomes 5, 5 becomes 4, etc?.) and add YOUR email address (the one used on the paypal account) as number 6 on the list.

STEP 3: Change anything you need to, but try to keep this article as close to original as possible. Now, post your amended article to at least 200 newsgroups, message board. (I think there are close to
32,000 groups) All you need is 200, but remember, the more you post, the more money you make - as well as everyone else on the list!
Step 1) You do not need to re-type this entire letter to do your own posting. Simply put your cursor at the beginning of this letter and drag your : Cursor to the bottom of this document, and select 'copy'
from the edit menu. This will copy the entire letter into the computer memory.

Step 2) Open a blank 'notepad' file and place your cursor at the top of the blank page. From the 'edit' menu select 'paste'. This will paste a copy of the letter into notepad so that you can add your name to the list.

Step 3) save your new notepad
file as a .txt file. If you want to do your postings in different sittings, you'll always have this file to go back to. :

Step 4) Use Netscape or Internet explorer and try searching for various newsgroups (on-line forums, message boards, chat sites, discussions.)
Just example you log on any search engine like, yahoo.com,google.com, altavista.com,excite.com then you search with this subject millionaire message board? or money making message
board? or employment message board? or money making discussions?
or money making forum? or business message board? etc. You will find thousand & thousand message board. Click one by one then you will find the option post a new message.

Step 5) Visit these message boards and post this article as a new message by highlighting the text of this letter and selecting paste from the edit menu. Fill
in the Subject, this will be the header that everyone sees as they scroll through the list of postings in a particular group, click the post message button. You're done with your first one!.
Please Be Honest and it will truely work for you: Congrats!

ejit, this is a pyramid scheme...

it's refered to as a yramid cheme because of the way the user base grows out from beneath you...
this scam has been running since thdan of time, and people rarely make any money on it,

this explains it better than I could

this thread goes further to confirm how and why it is a bad idea to enter such pyramid schemes...
and also confims the suspition that pyraids are illegal.

The best argument against evolution are creationists themselves. They prove that life is devolving rather than evolving.
